It's hard to become distant from his family... we were family for so long. And then I think, why do we have to become distant?
Today his dad sent a group message on FB messenger about his new product and how it's launching and I don't know if he did it to try and make peace or he wasn't thinking... but he included the wildebeest in the message... I immediately held my breath when I saw who the group consisted of.
In the past he would send messages to mom, brother, sis in law, M and I... and this time it included her...
I got sad and mad. I texted him right away and let him know that I fully support him but I was upset to see her name. He apologized and I felt like an ass right away. I apologized and said it is just difficult but I am proud of him. He said thank you and asked if we could have a coffee date soon. I said yes please.
M's dad is one of my best friends... he helped me keep my sanity most of the year we were in counseling. He believed in me, in us and has always been so wonderful. I miss being closer to him. And I don't want to lose what we have.
Still, I hate seeing her name, her user pic where her and M are together... and especially in a family message.
I can't imagine how torn his parents are. It's their kid, and they hate what he did...his mom once told me that if she could chose a kid to keep in the family between M and I it would be me...
I hope things get easier, heal more and that everyone can have peace... well, almost everyone.
I still hope things fall apart for M and the wildebeest. I know I shouldn't think negative things but when it comes to those two assholes, I mean it.
